Widow 'horrified' that 'The Crown' featured her husband's death in season 4

Sarah Horsley, the widow of Major Hugh Lindsay, has criticized the Netflix公司 系列 “皇冠for referencing her husband’s death during an episode in Season 4.

Major Lindsay, a former equerry to the queen, was killed in an avalanche in March 1988 while skiing with Prince Charles in Klosters, 瑞士.
